Last night was the first time, after three nights, that I left Flame with the flock at bedtime. I was very pleased to find that at dusk both Vanilla and Flame had perched. I think we have definitely come through this now.
There seems to be a bit of a parting of the ways on the little girls’ perch. I am not sure what that is all about.
Smoke started laying again yesterday after her broody spell. It was three weeks since Smoke last laid. Cinnamon has finished her weeks course of baytril and is back to her usual self. I am sure she will be happy not be grabbed twice a day.
I hardly dare say it but everything is back to normal in the chicken run … touch wood!
